8 Major Reasons You Aren't Shedding Pounds and How to Fix Them!

July 15, 2015 2 min read

Eating well and exercising, but your extra pounds won't budge? Here are the 8 major reasonsthat weight isn't going anywhere: #1 You're Not Eating Enough Ok, so it sounds strange. However, limiting your portion sizes too much can actually have a negative impact on weight loss. Not eating enough slows down your metabolism and impedes any pound shedding. So eat well portioned, healthy meals! #2 You're Dehydrated Drinking water makes you feel more full, and keeps you from overeating. Plus it flushes out toxins from your system. Make sure you're properly hydrated with water! #3 You're Cutting Out a Macronutrient Diets that cut out essential macronutrients (e.g. low-carb or fat-free) do not work. Whole grains are carbs and keep you feeling energized and full with fiber, and healthy fats like those found in fish and avocados do wonders for your health. #4 You're Not Eating Breakfast This is the most important meal of the day and should be full of fiber and protein to keep your metabolism functioning properly! #5 Stress Has Taken Over Stress can cause emotional binge eating and lack of sleep which both cause weight to stay stationary. Stress-reducing workouts like yoga and swimming can help alleviate anxiety and shed pounds. #6 You Love Dining Out Many restaurants use processed ingredients, chemicals, added sugars and trans fats in their dishes. So if you love dining out, eat salads and fresh, simple dishes without too many additives. #7 You Eat "Diet" Foods Anything "fat-free", "diet" or even "sugar free" is loaded with extra chemicals for improved taste. Stay away from anything "diet", especially diet sodas. #8 You Don't Have Enough Muscle More muscle mass increases your body's calorie burning ability. Try light resistance training to boost your muscles and lose weight faster! What are your tips on losing weight? Share them with us!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
